Your iTunes downloads could be quicker in future. Streaming specialist Swarmcast has released an application to accelerate the iTunes download mechanism.

According to Reuters , Swarmcast's technology can speed up iTunes downloads by up to 10 times. Called the Autobahn Accelerator, it uses a technology called multi-source to deliver faster downloads through multiple servers.

"This is all about being able to bring a cable or satellite television-type of experience to folks watching video over the internet," Swarmcast founder Justin Chapweske told Reuters.

The tech doesn't just work with music either - it'll also work with the video downloads provided by iTunes.
